Loved this tour. Both places are must visit! The trip into the woods is on a windy narrow road so if you are prone to car sickness this might not be the best place for you to visit. Our driver kept it cool and went somewhat slow so that was helpful. The woods were so beautiful and I am so glad we went on the tour. Parking was full at the woods so being on a tour bus allowed for easy drop off/ pick up. Sausalito was a great place to walk around and visit the shops. We loved the plants, water, shops, and restaurants. This was one of our favorite places we went during our trip. The ferry ride back was really easy because we did not have a bike. The bikers seemed to wait for a very long time to get on a late afternoon ferry. We ate lunch at hamburgers which was recommended by our tour guide and loved it! They make the burgers in the window on a spinning grille. Great little spot for lunch!

Very comfortable coach, convenient pick up from hotel, very informative commentary and a good option to stop at Sausalito and return by ferry. We didn't use the option for the return shuttle from Fisherman's Wharf back to our hotel, but it was good to know it was available. Highly recommended trip.

Quite a deal for the money. A bus ride, a tour, and a ferry ride if you want. Door to door service. Muir Woods is nice and something to see once. Saucelito had nothing but crowds for us so we took the bus back to the wharf. Wharf has great seafood. Then not as well publicized but if you meet back at tour office on wharf at 5 you can get a ride back to your hotel. Good deal all around.

Great driver & guide :)


Maureen, Aberdeen, NJ, Jul 5, 2017

Bus driver was a great tour guide, providing interesting information that I would not have learned on my own. The amount of time in Muir Woods was good for a nice walk through the paths. I particularly appreciated that they dropped you in Sausalito and let you decide when to take the ferry. My husband was not interested in shopping, so we were able to leave right after lunch.

Muir Woods is a great excursion to see the large Sequoia trees in their natural forest habitat. The trip to the woods takes you over the Golden Gate bridge going North. The woods has a cafe for food and drink and also two shops and restrooms. The actual walk is limited to 90 minutes but is ample time get a flavour of the national park. We chose to get the ferry back across the bay rather than staying on the bus. This offered excellent views of the bridge and Alcatraz. You pick up the ferry at Sausalito and return to Fisherman's wharf in San Francisco.

Excellent and bus driver great. Would have liked about an hour more to walk north in woods though. Water on bus would have been nice too.


Tour Details

The Popular Muir Woods & Sausalito Tour with Return by Ferry to Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco, Pier 41. Allows for extended visit on your own in Sausalito.

Travel north in style, on a comfortable, air conditioned vehicle, across the Golden Gate Bridge , the icon of San Francisco, and through our picturesque coastal headlands into one of the oldest national monuments.

Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais is Muir Woods National Monument , one of the remaining groves of first growth coastal redwoods. The woods were named for John Muir, a 19th century naturalist who was instrumental in establishing the National Park system.

Muir Woods is made up of over 560 acres of redwood forest containing the largest Coast redwoods, up to 252 feet tall and 14 feet across, 1000 years old! Wander through this grove of virgin Redwoods and capture photo opportunities like you’ve rarely experienced. The park is home to 50 species of birds, black-tailed deer, steelhead trout and hundreds of other wild inhabitants.

Then travel on to picturesque Sausalito which was once a fishing village and now a tiny bayside community. Quaint Victorian bungalows are built into the steep hillside and a variety of waterfront restaurants, boutiques and small art galleries line the downtown shopping district. Sausalito has a Mediterranean appeal that is often compared to the French Riviera.

Once you depart from the tour in Sausalito,  take your time exploring Sausalito! You’ll have time for shopping, photos or a bit of exploring long the waterfront of this unique town, with its old world charm and breathtaking views of the Bay and San Francisco skyline.  When you check in for your tour with your tour operator, you will receive your one-way ferry ticket and ferry schedule to take the 30-35 minute cruise back to Pier 41, San Francisco.

*Entrance fee for Muir Woods is included.
